Hollyoaks newcomer Freddie Roscoe will show himself to have an even darker side than his tearaway younger brother Robbie.

Charlie Chapman joins Hollyoaks next week as the older brother of bad boy sixth former Robbie (Charlie Wernham), whose behaviour has been spiralling out of control.

Freddie arrives in time to catch Robbie stealing money from headteacher Patrick Blake, and appears to want to teach his brother to stay on the straight and narrow, telling him off and dunking his head in the fountain to teach him a lesson.

But when he finds out Ste Hay (Kieron Richardson) is keeping hold of some pills that Robbie had in his possession when they both hosted a rave at Chez Chez, Freddie is not happy, revealing that the drugs belong to him.

But Ste manages to come to an arrangement with Freddie, and agrees to start selling the drugs himself. But when Robbie finds out he blackmails Ste into letting him help, and Ste will have to try and keep both brothers happy without Freddie finding out what’s going on.
